I'm not bagging this bloke at all just trying to figure out "why would you do this"?.
Can Anyone with actual experience shooting silhouette with handguns explain the reasons behind shooting like this...even if its just for the sheer f##koffness!!! :unknown: :lol: :drinks:

I recall seeing people shooting silhouette with Thompson Contenders about 25-30 years ago in this position.

I understood that it gave a reasonably stable rest when shooting with one of those funny guns that are halfway between a handgun and a rifle??

Never tried it myself; afraid a knee might pop out for good...

Cheers,

Rod.

Used to do it with rifle as well.
Sometimes, the tang sight was mounted on the top of the "heel" of the butt-stock, to gain as much sight radius as possible.
There's not much new in shooting.

Pretty standard for handgun metallic silhouette. You also see another modified stance like this called squashed frog (crossed legs). Prone (elbows on the ground) and sitting (resting elbows on knees) is also permitted, as well as standing. 200m is a looong way with a pistol.

In pistol silhouette it is called Creedmoor position and is VERY stable, shooting possibles, ( 40/40 ), is common in pistol and then the shoot-offs start, usually using smaller targets at the 200m line.
The position shown with the "old-timers" shooting rifles is called "supine" and was also the most common position until prone took over. The way they're dressed is indicative of the late 1800's as target shooting was a gentleman's sport.

So how does it go with a large cal revolver and gas from the cylinder( I remember watching mythbusters and the damage done to the meat hand) or don't they use them this way?
Thanks again for all the info I find it very interesting if a little weird!!! :lol: :drinks:

Leather patch over your calf, usually held it place with a strap or elastic.

Mind you, there is also a 22LR version, still shot in Creedmore out to 100M in production, revolver, half scale, standing etc, and it is a very stable shooting position.
